Editors’ Notes Released in early 1973, Larks’ represents King Crimson's third distinct lineup. John Wetton joins Robert Fripp as the finest singer since Greg Lake, while drummer Bill Bruford provides a kinetic power that serves the material elegantly. David Cross’ violin, viola, and flute (on “Exiles”) color the two-part instrumental title track and add an eerie sense to “Book of Saturday.” The bonus tracks further explore the chemistry among the players. Often considered the first part of a trilogy that features Starless and Bible Black and Red, Larks’ is arguably the toughest for new fans to process (though “Exiles” is gorgeous).
